5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Source of Tomato Gardening Info March 28 2012
By JP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Years ago I had the most wonderful tomato balcony garden. I started it at the recommendation of a co-worker who was a real gardening buff. Before that I truly hated tomatoes. I had no idea that tomatoes could actually be delicious! Trust me, the ones that come out of your garden taste nothing like what you get from the stores. My favorites were the small cherry tomatoes. They were oh so sweet. I had several terra cotta pots of those. Sadly they were all given up when I moved. At the thought of once again creating a balcony tomato garden I found this book and am really getting jazzed again at the prospect of having my garden going!

The book covers pot selection, plat selection, soil selection, fertilization, and many tips to maximize your harvest. I wasn't expecting to see tomato recipes but found several good ones in this book. If you love tomatoes get this book! If you have no space and want to creat a mini tomato garden it can be done and this book tells you how. There is even a section on building a self-watering container. The photos are sharp and really bring the book to life. For the low price this book costs it is well worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Information; Needs an Editor July 15 2012

Replete with errors, but I'm keeping it anyway for the excellent tomato advice, including links to websites. Even a "How To" book can/should be well written.

One vital error: author lists varieties of hybrid and heirloom tomatoes. But she switches the list, so the hybrids are heirloom varieties and vice versa.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple for small spaces! March 28 2012
By Eric Lass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book really simplifies tomato gardening and makes it extremely efficient, especially for small spaces. I live in an apartment so this book is really going to help me create my own fresh tomatoes. The tips at the end of the book are awesome, everything really makes perfect sense.

Highy recommend this book to anyone looking for fresh tomatoes but doesn't have room for a full garden!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for gardening in limited space April 2 2012
By Jordana - Published on Amazon.com

A while back I grew tomatoes in pots on my patio because we love home grown tomatoes and don't have access to a market nearby. I had some problems with that little adventure in gardening, and haven't tried patio gardening since! This book has convinced me to give it another try. After reading the book, I can see what I did wrong. More importantly, I now understand the correct way to set up pots in which to cultivate tomatoes.

The book covers many topics that include where to grow your tomatoes, what type pots to use, proper soil formulation, fertilizing, watering made easy, how to select the best types of tomatoes to grow, how to plant, and how to prevent diseases and insect infestations. When I grew tomatoes previously, it was so labor intensive to water them--I can't wait to make the self-watering containers that will solve that problem and allow me to grow juicy delicious tomatoes with much less work. The instructions and illustrations provided for this are very good.

There are even some delicious recipes to fix with the fruits of my labor--I'm really looking forward to giving those a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Great Book. March 28 2012

This is exactly what I was looking for--a comprehensive book on growing tomatoes in containers. Everything you need to know is in here, and there's no fluff. I'm psyched. She even shows you how (with photos) to make your own self-watering containers. There are also recipes, and all kinds of info on soil, pests, container options and tomato varieties. Really well done.
